The first series, where Ethno G is interpreted as a fusion of Ethnic and Techno (Technology), paid homage to the Aboriginals, the Maia’s and Balinese culture. The second series takes the fusion of Ethnic and Techno to the street fashion trend of 1998 “Digital and Organic”. This time the series were inspired with the cultures of Africa, the South American Inca’s, China and Goa (India). The culture can be found in the first letter in the suffix.

C stands for Chinese Culture. Although the description says the upper band has an Arabesque pattern, it looks more like a plant (bamboo?) pattern to me. The EL backlight is the dragon. In Chinese mythology the dragon is the most powerful and divine creature, which controls all the water. The dragon in the EL backlight is probably Yinglong, the God of the rain. Many Chinese pray to Yinglong in order to receive rain.
